China Daily (Hong Kong) - - CHINA -

SEOUL — The 10th Chi­naSouth Korea Me­dia HighLevel Di­a­logue was held in Seoul on Thurs­day, with par­tic­i­pa­tion of rep­re­sen­ta­tives from the main­stream me­dia groups of the two coun­tries as well as lo­cal ex­perts.

Xu Lin, deputy head of the Pub­lic­ity De­part­ment of the Com­mu­nist Party of China Cen­tral Com­mit­tee and direc­tor of the State Coun­cil In­for­ma­tion Of­fice of China, and Do Jong-hwan, min­is­ter of cul­ture, sports and tourism of South Korea, led their sep­a­rate del­e­ga­tions.

The di­a­logue cen­tered on tech­nol­ogy in­no­va­tion and bi­lat­eral eco­nomic and trade ties, the role of me­dia in the de­vel­op­ment of eco­log­i­cal in­dus­try and other top­ics.

The at­ten­dees agreed that the Me­dia High-Level Di­a­logue has played an ac­tive role in pro­mot­ing mu­tual un­der­stand­ing and friend­ship be­tween the peo­ples of the two coun­tries since it started in 2009.

The two sides should deepen co­op­er­a­tion and spread ra­tio­nal voices to con­trib­ute to the sound and sta­ble de­vel­op­ment of ties be­tween the coun­tries, they said.

Xu Lin urged the me­dia pro­fes­sion­als to un­der­take the his­tor­i­cal task of main­tain­ing, strength­en­ing and de­vel­op­ing China-South Korea ties, and play an ac­tive role in pro­mot­ing co­op­er­a­tion and peo­pleto-peo­ple ex­changes.

Do Jong-hwan said me­dia co­op­er­a­tion be­tween China and South Korea is very im­por­tant in pro­mot­ing peace and pros­per­ity of North­east Asia, urg­ing the at­ten­dees to share their ex­pe­ri­ences and ideas on pro­mot­ing the fu­ture de­vel­op­ment of their coun­tries.

Chi­nese rep­re­sen­ta­tives came from the Peo­ple’s Daily, Xin­hua News Agency and the China Me­dia Group, and South Korean rep­re­sen­ta­tive came from JoongAng IIbo, Yon­hap News Agency and Korean Broad­cast­ing Sys­tem.

Lo­cal ex­perts were from Korea Ad­vanced In­sti­tute of Science and Tech­nol­ogy, So­gang Uni­ver­sity and other South Korean re­search in­sti­tutes.

Es­tab­lished in 2009, the China-South Korea Me­dia High-Level Di­a­logue is aimed at boost­ing mu­tual trust and co­op­er­a­tion be­tween the me­dia of the two coun­tries, which take turns host­ing the an­nual di­a­logue.
